Wrote about writer/director Benjamin Carland’s indie sci-fi film “Sol” a while back, but haven’t heard much from it until now. The film has since wrapped production, and they’re currently looking for a distributor. Until then, they’ve released a new full-length trailer that explains the film’s premise — a game where winner takes all, an alien planet, and teen males spiraling out of control. What could possibly go wrong?

“Sol” is a sci-fi motion picture event set in the distant future on a hostile alien planet. It follows a group of ambitious young adults as they embark upon the prestigious Sol Invictus competition in a quest to win fame and glory. The rules of the game are simple but dire: each of Earth’s finest Academies sends their best and brightest to a remote planet in a race against the rest. The first team to pinpoint, out of all the stars in the sky, which one is Earth’s faraway sun — Sol — is the winner. But no one goes home until the games are won…

A glorious life awaits the lucky few who win, and many have died at the hands of their peers along the way with no questions asked.

But visions of victory crumble as the teams are marooned on the wrong planet with most of their teammates missing – along with all of their equipment. What starts as a game for glory soon descends into a race for survival as former enemies must band together in the bleak hope of surviving long enough to win.

Starring Jake Brown, Caleb Courtney, Sky King, Aaron Kuban, Spenser Pollard, Tyler Thomas, and Jake White.

    Reminds me of Robert A Heinlein’s “Stranger in a Strange Land”. :-)
